FSJ Mother Nature Color Me Washi!

Share Button

Monday, March 13, 2017

Today’s card is a little monochromatic with a pop of color. The Mother Nature Color Me Washi tape was beautiful as is but with just a pop of color it was a WOW!

I used the Journey Color Burst pencils to add just a little color to the Washi Tape.

I also added the Black Licorice Sparkle tape to add just a little shimmer and shine.

The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Yummy Party stamp set.

I did this technique in Watermelon Fusion and Cool Pool.

On the Cool Pool card I also used the gorgeous Cool Pool Ribbon and on the Watermelon Fusion the Bubble Gum Ribbon.

I added a little Sweet Candy Drop to both cards coordinating with the pop of color.

Washi Tape Butterfly

Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlits and Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape

Washi Tape Butterfly
Today’s card was done for the sketch challenge at the Paper Craft Crew.

When I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use the Everyday Chic Designer Washi Tape for my background piece behind the butterfly.

I have always loved Black, White and Silver and this Washi tape is gorgeous! Get it before it’s gone! It is on the Retired List! I ran the tape over a piece of Whisper White cardstock and matted it onto a piece of Silver cardstock.

The Butterfly was cut out of Silver Foil paper using the Butterflies Thinlits die. A little 3/4″ Circle was punched out of the Silver Foil paper as well and attached behind the sentiment strip.

I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to get the black speckles on the Whisper White cardstock.

The card is Whisper White on a Black cardstock base.

The “Thinking of You” sentiment is from a Past Paper Pumpkin kit and fits perfectly on a strip of Whisper White cardstock matted onto a piece of Black cardstock.

To finish it off a couple of Pearl Jewels.

This is really pretty in person.

90th Birthday Card Masculine

Share Button

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Yesterday I told you my Mom needed two 90th Birthday cards; one feminine and one masculine. Yesterday I showed you the feminine one and today I have the masculine one.

masculine 90th Birthday

I used the Memorable Moments stamp set #132039 $29.95 or #126682 $21.95 for both cards.

I also decided my colors for this card were going to be Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.

I decided to use the Cherry Cobbler Washi tape from the Season of Style Designer Washi Tape #132155 $4.95 (See it’s not just for Christmas) and the Gray Washi Tape from the Epic Day This & That Designer Washi Tape #131269 $4.95.

I also used the Natural Trim Ribbon #129287 $6.95.

I finished it off with a Smoky Slate button from the Neutrals Designer Buttons #130031 $7.95 tied with Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine #123125 $2.95.

This card is a little cleaner and quicker to do than the feminine but still a very nice card.

If you would like to order any of the supplies to recreate this card please go to my website HERE.

As always I appreciate any and all your orders and that’s what keeps me blogging. Thanks again and have a great day!

Washi Banners

I used the Epic Day This & That Washi Tape #131269 $4.95 a couple different ways on this card.

I created the little banners with the washi tape wrapping it about the Baker’s Twine and cutting the ends to a point.

The little strip under the motorcycle (Rev Up the Fun #130520 $18.95 or #130523 $14.95) is the gray striped washi tape which makes it look like a road or tire tread. Just a fun card.
